We journey with God, to serve with love

We continue our virtual worship for the Easter Season!

Click here for Facebook videos, our Youtube channel,


or directly to the service for September 20th (uploaded by Sunday a.m.) 

Please Note the NEW TIMES and SETTINGS for Worship!


We are offering Outdoor / Green Space Worship each Sunday at 10:00a.m. (please note the new time!) in the church's West Lawn (Please arrive early), followed by Parking Lot Communion in the south parking lot at 11am. We hope you can join us.


We have also set a target date for returning to sanctuary worship at 10am on Sundays starting October 11th.


Click here for a detailed instruction sheet and map of the church property for Outdoor Worship and Parking Lot Communion.


We hope to provide an abbreviated worship experience, with prayers, readings and short message, etc. by Pastor Paul and others each week, at least as we re-group during the Coronaviris pandemic. Our worship will be first "aired" on Facebook Sundays at 9a.m. EST with a "LiveWatch" gathering, andr then available on our Facebook and Youtube video pages. 

Zoom Fellowship will no longer take place on Sunday mornings after July 12th, but will be held after our Wednesday evening 7pm Holden Evening Prayer services on Facebook LiveWatch. Zoom Fellowship begins at approximately 7:30pm. Contact Pastor Paul via the "Send Us a Message" feature on our website if you would like to obtain the Zoom login information for those fellowship sessions. Or, if you would like to watch our "WBLC" interactive portal to "Zoom Fellowship," that will happen at 7:45pm each Wednesday night this summer on our Facebook page.

We also now have easy to read Worship Sheets for "Real Church Virtual" services (click here.)
